so what about the speedy racer turbo kits? anyone got experience with these? my buddy is running one on his b18, hasnt had any real issues, he beats the car to hell and he ended up getting the turbo rebuilt with garret parts for only like $150.

heres the link if yall want to see it.

its cheap, but i havent heard anyone running them on a k20. im thinking about it cause of the price, and instead of just letting the turbo burn out, i was gonna have it rebuilt with garret parts before it goes in the car.
any help and advice would be appreciated.

Have seen a couple civics running these on Ks. Was told to basically throw away the turbo and manifold they give you :dontknow:

which was pretty much kinda what i planned on doing, but for <$700 its kinda a steal no? considering to get the turbo rebuilt to garret specs for like $150 doesnt sound like a bad plan.

Im in Downtown LA area and don't want a shop that is just going to try to slap this kit in. Goal whp with the right turbo is hopefully in north of 350 so i believe dyno tuning is a must

drove there and pick one

first, doubt about the kit from speedyracer due to cheap price. 20 mins drove from my place.. bought one directly from warehouse, so far happy no complaint.. huge warehouse bought my trust, plus got some discount to even my tax.
